sfontain (830) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Draft sample at The Pint Room, 6/19/2013. Medium-density dark brown smaller off-white creamy head; medium lacing. Roast, toast, chocolate, sweet, nutty. Body is creamy yet on the thinner side. I couldnít find any coconut in this.

Pours deep red with a tan head. Aromas of coconut and chocolate. Taste like coconut milk and chocolate. Medium on the palate. The coconut really lightens the taste. Definitely a dessert beer. Really interesting. Good in small doses.

Fritz123 (1268) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Sampler at the tasting room. Pours a mostly black with a fluffy white head. Aroma of coconut, coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa beans. The taste was coconut and chocolate up front. Slight bitter on the end. I donít know why but a hint of infection at the end. Is there lacto in there? Medium body and carbonation.

This is one unique and tasty brew. Taste of desert in a bottle. This brew has a unique chocolate and coconut character. Enjoy!

umich03jm (2476) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown pour with very little head. Aromas are chocolate milk, coconut, mint, and light coffee. Taste has lots of lactose and coconut, some light chocolate and coffee. Rough mouthfeel, kinda chalky. An ok milk stout.

Gearz (38) - Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Poured from a bottle produces a jet black beer with minimal head or lacing. The initial smell is cocoa nibs or something bitter like that. The first taste was amazing with a nice smooth mouthfeel followed by a subtle coconut after taste. This stout has the best coconut flavor I can recall in a beer. Subsequent tastes donít provide the same flavor but good time between sips provides great pleasure. Thanks to Natalie (A distributor I met in a bar in Covington, KY)

   AROMA 2/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 1/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 6/20
UrbanCaveman (136) - Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2014
On tap at the Tap House Grill in Kenwood. A: Arrived in the glass almost pitch black, with a thin tan head. Minimal lacing was left on the glass. S: I did not detect much of the chocolate or coconut promised by the name, but instead a mixture of roasty - yeasty malt and what seemed to be sweet mint. The combination smelled a bit like loam from a riverbank. T: Again, not much in the way of chocolate or coconut. They were present, but mostly obscured by a single-note roasted malt profile and that mintiness. The beer opened with a club of dark roasted malt, with sweetness and mint joining in the middle to present a taste not unlike drinking a fish. Said fishy taste lingered on after the finish. F: This is a full, chewy, heavy stout, exactly what one wants to feel. O: Something of a disappointment to me, with the flavor profile. I wonít be repeating.

Taster at beerfest - I mistook the coconut for bourbon flavors. Quite complex and mildly sweet. Chocolate and roast aftertaste.

phaleslu (7208) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Draft at the Cincy Brew Ha Ha. Pours a deep, opaque brown (or at least from what I could tell - it was past sunset at this point) with a small beige head. The coconut and lactose are on full display here, but thereís also a significant earthy, citrusy hop note coming through - like a dark chocolate/orange peel-forward black IPA. It was like two different beers mixed. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet, bitter, gritty mouthfeel. Either the hops or the coconut-lactose combo need to go because they donít work together when all are at the forefront.

DialSquare (3174) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2014
On tap at the Daily Growler. Black-brown pour thin team had and strong retention. Aroma of roasted malt and cocoa. Tastes are chocolate, caramel, slight burnt woody, cocoa bitter. Donít get too much of the coconut. Nice. 7.4

alexsdad06 (6564) - Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Draft sample from 2012(notes). Pours dark brown in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have mildly roasted malts, chocolate, lactose, moderate sweetness, a hint of coffee, the coconut kicks in kind of late and is subtle. Not a big beer, but decent enough.
